Rise Against have announced a September 10 release date for Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013, a 26-song collection that includes previously unheard music that dates back to before the band signed a record deal with label Fat Wreck Chords.
The album even includes their punk rock cover of Journey’s 1980 hit, “Any Way You Want It.” (Listen below.)
“In the last thirteen or so years Rise Against has put out six records, each one we are proud to put our name on,” Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath said in a press release. “But we are just as proud of these 26 songs that slipped through the cracks and never ended up on any of our full lengths. In various ways, most of these songs saw the light of day at some point, but we thought we would spare you the digging and put them all on one record.”
Rise Against has also released a teaser video for the new compilation, which features the band’s drummer Brandon Barnescalling the new release “something of a history of Rise Against.”
Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013 will be available for pre-order and exclusive fan offers starting July 30 on the band’s official website.
